Losing Grip is happening this Thursday from 6pm to 8pm at the Goethe Institut! It is a spoken word story written and performed by Ngartia, with the support of FlowFlani Wakaba (a human beat-box), Ciano Maimba (vocalist and guitarist), Phy (musician), Achieng Otieno ( vocalist from the band Royalty By Black) and Laura Wanjirũ Ekumbo (writer and actress).

The narrative will be told in 10 poetry pieces that are in form of letters and diary entries and several musical acts serving as interludes.
